Sale-A-Bration Simple Sunday

Thank you for joining me today for my 5th Sale-A-Bration Simple Sunday project.  There are 26 days left to get free Sale-A-Bration products so if there are Stampin’ Up! products you have been waiting to order now is the time to place that order and get free products too. You can choose a free Sale-A-Bration product for every £45 you spend (before shipping).  Sale-A-Bration items are only available whilst supplies last.

I found it quite challenging to come up with ideas on using the Carried Away DSP without having a hot air balloon stamp or die.  I love the Lift Me Up stamp set and Up & Away Thinlits dies, they are on my Wish List but every time I go to order them I find something else.  Does this happen to you too?

Christmas is my favourite time of year and I love a challenge so I said I would make the train.

Please bear with me as this is my first attempt at writing a tutorial, I hope it will be helpful.  If you have any questions please leave a comment and I will get back to you as soon as I can. 
 
SHIRT
For the card base I used a full sheet of A4 cardstock and folded it in half. UK cardstock measures 11 ¾” x 8 ¼” but this will work with 11” x 8 ½” cardstock too.  Because I was making a few of these cards I found it easier to make a template.
